Round one of Daytime Emmy Awards pre-nomination complete. Find out who made the cut and will proceed to the second round.

It’s officially the start of Daytime Emmy season. The Drama Performer Pre-Nominations for the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards have been announced. The pre-nominees were selected by registered, eligible peer judges who viewed clips of the performers and narrowed it down to their favorite ten candidates in each category, with one exception. In the Lead Actress category there was a tie, so instead of ten nominations, there will be 11.

The candidates below who received the most votes will advance to the Blue Ribbon screening round, scheduled to begin on February 22, which will determine the final nominees and winners from each category. The only exception is the Younger Actor and Actresses category, all of which will automatically advance to the final round.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Eileen Davidson was nominated in two categories. First as Ashley Abbott on Young and the Restless in the Lead Actress category and as Susan/Kristen/Sister Mary in Days Of Our Lives.

Tristan Lake Leabu, who plays Reed Hellstrom on Young and the Restless, received his first Emmy pre-nomination. Noah Alexander (Charlie, Y&R) and Lexie Stevenson (Mattie, Y&R) also scored pre-nomination mentions.

Peter Bergman (Jack, Y&R) seems to be a shoo-in to win the Lead Actor category. His scenes this year with Eileen Davidson and Marla Adams were Emmy award-winning performances.
